    Even though it seems like Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins just hoisted Lord Stanley, hockey is back.

    The eastern Conference is loaded with skill and speed. The Lightning , Capitals, and Penguins are at the top of the food chain.

    Out West it will be interesting to see if the Blackhawks can bounce back from an early playoff exit.

    Auston Matthews, last years first overall pick got the season off to a great start last night by scoring 4 goals in his NHL debut. He will definitely be one to watch this season.


    The Penguins raise their 4th Championship banner this evening when they open the season against Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals at 8pm.

    Who ya got this year? I think the penguins will repeat.

    Would love to say the Pens out of the East but not super confident.

    Blues out of the West.

    Crosby/McDavid as Hart/Art Ross candidates.

    Unfortunately it won't be the Briuns this year, I am worried they will miss the playoff for a third straight year.
    As much as I love Claude for bringing the cup back to Boston he has to go. He refuses to change from a heavy defensive mind set to speed and offense, for gods sake he let Seguin go to the Stars, the good thing is it appears he is going to get more of the young players involved

    Quick injured in game one of the season. Not the start I wanted for Los Angeles.

    With or without Matthews, the Leafs will suck as usual.

    that was so unfortunate.

    do you think he will live up to the hype? I'm not sold on him, but then again I've seen him play about 6 games...

    I'm going into it with very low expectations and I'm not going to get excited if they have a winning streak in November or December. If they make the playoffs I'll be pleasantly surprised but I don't expect them to go very deep.
